Why the Toyota Corolla is the perfect second car for your family.

The Corolla Sedan could be the perfect car for your family

Why the Toyota Corolla is the perfect second car for your family.

Sick and tired of sharing the one car, or sharing the one nice car and the bomb car? Then it’s time to get a new car that is the perfect extra car for your family, or even the only car for your family! The Toyota Corolla is a great option due to its small size, yet roomy interior, and the price point is fantastic. Here are three great features you will love.


The Corolla Sedan has been awarded the maximum 5 Star ANCAP safety rating. It comes with 7 seven SRS airbags which includes a driver's knee SRS airbag, driver and front passenger SRS airbags, front side SRS airbags and a full-length curtain shield SRS airbag. The front side airbags have two chambers to improve safety by applying different pressures to the chest and hip areas of people in the car.

There are also reverse parking sensors so you always know when you are in reverse, and a reversing camera so you can always see what is behind you.

Fuel efficient, yet still powerful.

The Corolla has a 1.8L Dual VVT-i engine and is super fuel efficient with 6.7L/100km which is awesome; you’ll be driving around without having to fill your car up for ages. Despite its fuel efficiency it still has plenty of power and very little drag when it comes to putting on the accelerator.

Enough tech grandma can use it.

We all love the fancy bits of technology a new car has, but we don’t want it to be so advanced we don’t know how to use it. The Corolla has easy-to-use steering wheel controls so you can control your audio and make phone calls. There is also a single CD player and a 6.1" LCD touchscreen with 6 speakers so you can disco while you drive. Options for keyless entry and keyless start with their Smart Entry and Smart Start System are also available add-ons, as is Satellite Navigation with their SUNA Traffic Monitoring Service.

So, if it’s time for an upgrade, or to get an extra car for your busy family, the Toyota Corolla is a great option, economical, roomy, and the price point is fantastic.
